In mobile ad hoc networks, one might expect multipath routing to provide some robustness to link failures and facilitate the transmission of packets along paths that avoid regions of congestion. Consequently, one would expect an improvement in network performance in terms of the achieved throughput. We consider TCP goodput as the metric of performance. We find that, contrary to expectations, not all TCP connections enjoy the benefits of multipath routing. Specifically, we find that while long… CONTINUE READING
